Recipe Round-up: 'cleanse-worthy' food for the whole family.

Recipe Round-up: ‘cleanse-worthy’ food for the whole family.

Once a year I love to do a 30 day cleanse. I love the feeling of starting fresh and getting my eating habits and digestion back to their best. Shedding a few unwanted lbs sometimes comes as a side-note to the rest of the package… peaceful sleep, a clear head and focus when I train. The best benefit of all is that I usually wind up eating much healthier after the cleanse too, so it’s really a great way to re-focus and re-energize our already healthy lifestyle.

My favorite cleanse is the Paleo ‘Whole30′.

I love it for a few reasons: 1. I can keep drinking Coffee ( Just without any dairy or sweeteners) 2. There’s lots of eating options. Meats, Veggies, Berries, Nuts and healthy Fats ( such as Coconut and Avocado oils etc). 3. I feel like I stay fueled for workouts, I don’t loose strength. 4. I can easily cook ‘ whole30’ friendly meals that the whole family will enjoy. If you are busy (as most of us are), then finding time to prep a fresh meal at the end of the day can feel very overwhelming. I’ve found that a little planning, a crockpot and some fresh recipe inspiration helps to make my evenings peaceful and my cleanse successful.  I wanted to put together a little round-up of some of the meals I’ve been cooking this month.

Roast Chicken.
